- Reaction score
View attachment 10337I was in Roumenia and Bucharest early 1995, more than 5 years after Ceaucescu was lynched, and the scarfs were still visible.
The country was exhausted and had come to a complete standstill.
If I had come one year earlier, I'd had to bring my own food with me, because food was still rationed then.
It made a big impression on me, but I also got very lucky.
I missed my plane, TAROM flight 371 to Brussels, which crashed short after take-off. The crew and all passengers died.
I agree it is much easier for Turks to rebel against Erdogan than to those kind of dictators.
53 % of Turks still voted for him and firmly believe in him.
Sorry for my bluntness, but it is not fear that stops those 53 % from rebelling, it is stupidity.
Albania, 1991. Communism ended only in December 1990.
53 % of people voting for him it's a big lie. Sorry saying it. Seems that you don't know how it works in dictatorships. The elections are rigged. The same as they are in Russia, Syria etc .
It was really sad seeing Erdogan at the flanks of Trump, Merkel, or Teresa May during the NATOs meeting.
